The BigBore II Subsea Wellhead System provides a highly flexible and customizable casing program designed to facilitate the drilling of wells that might penetrate shallow water flow zones and/or require several casing strings to accommodate sub-salt or small pore pressure/fracture-gradient differentials. Dril-Quip’s SS-15 BigBore II Subsea Wellhead System allows an additional casing string, hanger and seal assembly (typically 18") to pass through the 18 ¾" wellhead with the BOP stack and riser in place. This accommodates drilling and running a large bore diameter casing string through shallow pressurized water sands with complete BOP control and with drilling returns back to the drilling vessel.

18 ¾" Seal Assembly The SS-15 Seal Assembly is weight set and provides a metal-to-metal seal between the casing hanger OD and wellhead ID. The seal assembly is made from integral structural steel, with a protected resilient seal backup, which is trapped between the metal seal lips and can never extrude. The seal assembly is radially preloaded on a tapered surface of the casing hanger. Proper energizing of the seal assembly is assured even if formation cuttings or debris are in the cement return areas. Dril-Quip’s Seal Assembly has been successfully tested multiple times without the resilient material backup and with gumbo and formation cuttings packed around the casing hanger to demonstrate its true metal-to-metal sealing characteristics. The seal assembly has also been successfully cycle-tested multiple times per API 17D with water and nitrogen gas to 15,000 psi and 250º F. The same 18 ¾" seal assembly fits all casing hangers 14" and smaller. It is automatically locked to the casing hanger during pressure testing and will properly seal. The 18 ¾" seal assembly can be retrieved, if needed, by straight vertical pull. No torque or left-hand rotation is required to release the seal assembly from the casing hanger. Seal assembly lockdown capacity is 750,000 lbs. An 18 ¾" Emergency Seal Assembly is available if needed. It uses metal lips and radially squeezed elastomer on the OD and ID, rather than O-rings, and is installed on the casing hanger in the same manner as the standard seal assembly. The emergency seal sets higher in the annulus to utilize a fresh sealing area on the wellhead and the hanger.

LS-15™ LINER HANGER SYSTEM Dril-Quip’s LS-15 Liner Hanger System is available with all of Dril-Quip’s Wellhead Systems. The LS-15 Liner Hanger products are built to perform under a wide range of conditions, and are ideally suited for long reach, high angle, horizontal and ultra-heavy liner completions. This premium liner hookup incorporates many innovative tool designs, ensuring reliable operation and service in many of today’s most demanding wells.
LS-15 System Features The LS-15 Liner Hanger System features field-proven technology that incorporates the following:
Tie-Back Receptacle Castellated Profile to engage clutch of running tool Running Adapter Lock Ring Profile Shoulder to push liner hanger into hole Profile for Locking Cement Bushing (LCB)
• High strength, high pressure, high load-carrying capacity • Metal-to-metal Annulus Packer Seal for high pressure service • No hydraulic or mechanical devices on the hanger body, minimizing leak paths • Large slip area and controlled friction minimizes stress in the supporting casing
Body Lock Ring One-Piece C-Ring Hold-Down Slip (Optional)
• All hangers are automatically centralized when C-Ring Slip is set • Bypass flow area is the same after setting the liner hanger slip as in the running-in position • Maximizes circulating flow-by areas for efficient cementing operations • The LS-15 Liner Hanger System can be sized and configured to customer specifications
LS-15 Packer Seal Features
Body Lock Ring Pusher Sleeve LS-15 Metal-to-Metal Packer Seal Packer Cone
• Integral, one-trip metal-to-metal sealing design • Anti-swab design for faster running speeds and higher circulating rates, and resists mechanical damage while running
• Standard service for many sizes is 10,000 psi at 400°F. Higher pressures are achievable and are only limited by the capacity of the packer mandrel and casing
Rotational Option With the addition of a rotating bearing assembly, the LS-15 Liner Hanger can be rotated with the slips in the set position during the cementing operation. This feature can assist in completing a successful cement job.
One-Piece C-Ring Hang-Off Slip
The LS-15 System Incorporates a Unique Hanger Slip Design Dril-Quip’s proprietary one-piece C-Ring HangOff Slip has been developed to greatly reduce the amount of hoop stress placed on the supporting casing by the liner load. Dril-Quip’s circumferential slip design distributes the liner load much more evenly around the casing than conventional multislip segment hanger systems. The C-Ring Slip also incorporates a method of controlling the One-Piece C-Ring Slip friction between the slip and the hanger body. This “controlled friction” design redirects hoop load into axial load, drastically reducing the collapsing load on the hanger body and burst pressure on the casing. This combination of stress loading permits the LS-15 Liner Hanger System to hang longer and much heavier liners than possible with conventional technology. Slip
The Liner Hanger is run to total depth with the slip in the retracted, running position.
When released from its locked-down running-in position, the slip will spring open and come into contact with the ID of the supporting casing.
3 Hanger Cone
The hanger body is then slacked off onto the slip. The sharp teeth on the slip will secure the Liner Hanger to the supporting casing. At light loading, the dull inner slip teeth will not yet grab the cone as it slides behind the slip.
As the loading increases and travel progresses, the inner teeth begin to form small shoulders on the Liner Hanger slip cone. As the shoulders increase in size, the downward travel of the Liner Hanger is stopped before loading gets high enough to collapse the Liner Hanger body or burst the supporting casing.
LS-15 R unning T ool LS-15 Running Tool • The system incorporates high torque capacity for drilldown, wash-down applications and rotation during cementing operations • The running tool incorporates a port isolation system that eliminates the possibility of prematurely setting the slip, or releasing from the hanger while running into the hole • The hydraulics to set the liner hanger slip are built into the running tool, not as part of the hanger system, eliminating the need for a hydraulic port through the body of the liner hanger • The running tool is hydraulically released from the liner hanger and also incorporates a unique right-hand hydromechanical secondary release
